These are from my NoID Christmas Cactus (Schlumbergera) collection. They were acquired over the years, with the pink/yellow one being the most recent acquisition.

Beautiful Banner!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Congratulations on your first banner, Rick. Christmas cactus are among my favorites. Yours are stunning. I tip my hat to you.
Any day you wake up on the sunny side of the grass is a good day.

Thanks all! The CCs are doing really well for me this year.

I have a shelf set up in my bedroom with a light over it that gives them a full 12 hours of light each day. The temp never goes above 68­°. The posts are set in a double flat tray, with a pierced one nested in one without holes. Each week, or so, I flood the trays with water. The plants take up what they need and the rest provides humidity. (The orchids are loving the extra humidity, with 4 out of 7 spiking!)

I'm especially proud of the yellow ones (3rd from left). I picked them up last year when they were about done blooming, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. All I knew is that they were a yellow of some form.
